Investigating rocks and minerals

In science, we’ve been learning to observe closely and how to classify rocks and minerals. This knowledge has been so handy in all of our learning this term, where we’ve been studying books like ‘the pebble in my pocket’ and ‘the street beneath my feet’ in English, and learning about the Stone Age in History.

St. Pat’s Got Talent 2018

We finished the term in style today with a beautiful church service for Holy Week, a lovely attendance assembly and, to top it all off, our annual St. Pat’s Got Talent spectacular! Children in each class from Nursery to Year 6 have been auditioning in their classes and practising hard to make through to the finals. The standard was so high again; the talent in this school is truly incredible! We had singing, dancing, piano playing, comedy and even magic!

In the end, Thomas and Alfie from Year 1, and Viyan from Year 6 were this year’s St. Pat’s Got Talent winners with their superb performances, but all the performers were outstanding. It was great to see so many parents there to support the children too, as always.

Well done, everyone and have a lovely Easter. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the photos and videos below!

Year 3’s 3D Shape Museum

Today, Year 3 have been investigating the properties of 3D shapes. We decided to create our own 3D shapes using cocktail sticks for the edges and sweets for the vertices. We knew how many edges and vertices each shape had, so, for example, if we had 5 sweets (vertices) and 8 sticks (edges), we knew we could make a square based pyramid! Take a look!

Stonehenge Shenanigans

We had such a wonderful afternoon learning about the Neolithic era and the building of Stonehenge. The children learned about the advent of agriculture, before finding out about this incredible monument and why it may have been built.

The children loved doing a fact hunt before building their own miniature Stonehenges using playdoh. They had to use different colours for the HUGE Sarson stones and the beautiful blue stones.

Investigating soils

Today, we investigated different soils to try and work out what they were made of and if they were all the same. Some of us thought it came from the garden centre, others thought it was made from sand. By the end of the lessons, are findings told us that soils are all different and are made from lots of different parts…. we found decaying plants, rocks, sand and even a bone! Finally, we tested the pH of the different soils and found that some soils are more acid, while others are more alkali.

Science Afternoon at St Michael’s

I must say, these children make me so proud, without fail, every time I take them out. Their behaviour and manners are impeccable. It was great to see you learning and exploring classification and adaptations too! Thank you Year 3 and Year 4. Mrs Davies

A Wonderful Afternoon at the Philharmonic

 

We we had a fabulous time listening to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this afternoon. So many of our children told me how ‘lucky’ they felt on the way home. What a privilege!

Maths Trails at Liverpool Hope University

This morning, Years 3 and 4 went to Liverpool Hope University to take on some special maths challenges. The trainee teachers at Hope had planned a range of outdoor maths trails to test our maths skills! The children proved to be great problem solvers and we loved the maths trails! Well done, everyone!

Tectonic Plates

  

 

 

Today we looked in more detail at the structure of the Earth. We used biscuits to learn about how tectonic plates interact with each other and the results of the different collisions. Next we made models of the Earth.

Finally, we checked out some beautiful metamorphic rocks. Can you remember why they change when they are deep under ground?

Paul Cezanne-inspired still life drawings

A lovely afternoon creating our own still life compositions, following our learning about Paul Cezanne. The children used different grades of pencils to create lighter areas and shadows. As the pencils were water soluble, (nice science link there!) some of us used damp paintbrushes to blend our shading better.
